Girl recovering from brain injuries following collision
A little girl is recovering from brain injuries following a collision in which police accuse a man of driving drunk and crashing into her mother's car.
Jhori Delaspour is in stable condition at Texas Children's Hospital. Delaspour's mother said the collision caused bruises to the child's brain and other injuries. Doctors tell the family Jhori should make a full recovery, but she'll have to spend several months in the hospital. They'll move her to Shriners Hospital in the near future.
Port Arthur police say a man they believe was driving drunk crashed into the family's car Friday night.
The child's family was stopped at the light at 39th Street and Memorial when a man behind the wheel of a pickup truck ran the red light and smashed into them.
The little girl's mother says police told her the man was traveling at least 79 miles an hour.
Jhori was in her child safety seat in the rear of the car.
In the mother's words: "I thought I was dying. I remember being shaken. I remember seeing my baby unconscious. Someone took my baby out. I got out myself."
The mother wants to let everyone know her little girl is okay and is now off a ventilator.
Jhori will celebrate her second birthday June 21st.
